The Wagon

For he saw the Riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry
Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Yippie yi yaaaaay
Ghost Riders in the sky
- Ghost Riders in the Sky, Johnny Cash

I wasn't sure exactly what the response to my missive meant, but soon it became apparent.


They have always looked so...dashing, flying on their brilliant shields. And now I had the distraction I needed.

Markus dived behind the prisoner wagon, and motioned for me to do the same. I think he was trying to protect me in some way. How his own, lecherous manor. I joined him, and waited for the troops to fire before sneaking into the wagon, sure their eyes were no longer on me.

A conversation

I left the "dear" Captain as soon as I was able, and settled my bill with Hobart. While I was there, I asked him if he would ask Markus to stop by my room once the guardsman left; I had some questions for him. I sent my missive, and packed up my bag while I waited.

A Missive

Met imperial prisoner caravan from South in Corcoran. Conscripted to accompany to rendevous at Imperial Road to North. Leaving Corcoran in one hour. Awaiting Reply.

Of caverns, and gnomes, and children

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
-- Dylan Thomas

We've just returned from our rescue attempt. One child saved, one gone. And new companions, however long they will last.

Orthos - a mage, although his magic seems unlike that of my home...perhaps humans have different ways in such things

Markus - a drunk and a womanizer, but not a coward; he seems to have acquired some type of golem in the cave - Womblie is his name now

Varel (and Wolfie) - A druid and her companion, although she seems a little...soft for such endeavors

Nibben - a gnome who had been investigating the cave, seems a stealthy sort

Salbadore - a mage of the Lebenskraft Guildhouse, rescued from the goblins and "yuan-ti"; he has a raven with him, Mayna
